Does anyone know of a software which can be used to system integrate internal inventory and online shopping cart so that the inventory only has to be enter once and updated in one place.

There almost certainly won't be a COTS solution for your problem if your inventory system and shopping cart were written inhouse.  

If these are home-grown solutions, you could hire someone to force the cart to check inventory.  

If these are not home-grown solutions, tell us the product names and that will go a long way toward getting you some help.

I have developed integrated POS and web shopping cart systems.  It only worked because I created both ends.  If it is a larger business, you would want to have the off line system write to someplace that can be uploaded to the online version on a regular basis.

What I like about having my own complete system is I can do everything and anything that is thought up.  From offline/web/mobile

Sounds like in any option we will have to do custom code.

Almost certainly, unless your Inventory or Shopping Cart provider can write something for you.
